Taking inspiration from the Noguchi table, the Moebius combines elements of mathematical genius with simple funtionality. It's as if the glass top is suspended in air. A Moebius strip (or Möbius) is a surface that has only one face. The base of the Moebius table follows the same idea, forming an endless twisting base for the 3/4" thick glass tabletop. Made of walnut-stained beechwood, the upright supports of the table are accented with brass connectors.
